    I have a 2004 double cab and I'm not sure if the shocks on it are original or not. The front ones are black and the rears are a light blue color. Cant read anything on them...I want to improve the ride quality, so what would be the best shocks to go with if I'm not looking for a lift?

    Check the build
    well im just assuming the billies 5100 all around set at 0 will provide no lift and since there an upgrade from the stock billies, they will provide better ride quality. Just thinking off the top of my head though. some one correct me if i am wrong

    My TRD billies are blown to bits, with only 76K miles! :eek:

    I already ordered a set of 5100/5125, those worked great on my XJ Jeep!

    Can anyone confirm this please? I believe DSM saying something like this on their website. I'd like to hear from some first hand experience.

    I had 5100s with a stock rear end for a while. They are rated for 0-3" I believe

    DSM does state that on their website...and its the same price for the 5100/5125 combo from DSM..so why not just order that if you plan on keeping the height stock?
